I found this by the deck this morning. It looks dangerous to my eyes.
Are they safe?
Belated thank you to Wilsons. I just added the name. I was new to Project Noah and struggling to operate how to use Noah programs :-)
I used to be so scard of spiders (I don't know why). Now that I live close to nature and I love, I should not be so afraid ofseeing new creatures. Thank you so much for your help.
Oh, and yours is a female. Look around the edges of her web and see if you notice a much smaller male. He'll have similar body structure but is a fraction of the size.
Almost all spider species in the United States are of no medical significance to humans. They just have more legs than we do. ;-)
Thank you so much.It looks dangerous but now I know that they are good kind !
Its a writing spider aka garden spider. Bug eating machine with no interest in hurting you :)
